I don't know what you mean by "check the tag", but those look like the
output of "git describe" when HEAD is one or two commits ahead of
testtag (with no tags that are closer).

You're probably not running "git pull origin refs/tags/testtag", but I
think that's the only way to "pull the tag," so I don't know what
you're doing here. The tag doesn't include anything that's not part
of the tag's history, though, so "pulling" it won't get the latest
version of anything.

Tags never follow anything. Once they're created, they stay put.
